Seattle Sounders FC Logo.jpgSounders FC soccer continues through the weekend with a 1 p.m. MLS Reserve League game against the Los Angeles Galaxy. Note the start time, as it has changed.

Admission is free (while donations are encouraged) and parking is $5.

And a couple of noteworthy Sounders are expected to be involved.

Steve (Zakuani) will start in the reserve game and we’re going to give Mario (Martinez) some minutes, as well,” said coach Sigi Schmid of the midfielder the road to a full comeback and the team’s newest acquisition, respectively.

Schmid said he asked Martinez after Saturday’s game about the crowd and if Real Espana’s could compare.

“He just started laughing,” Schmid recalled. “He said, ‘No, this is tremendous.’ He’s excited and we’re excited to see him play. He trained with the group (Friday) and it was good.”

I’ll be providing updates from today’s game on the blog.
